We use a radically different .spec file locally, but at a first guess, 
try commenting out the line:

%patch1 -p1 -b .cert-config

The patch doesn't seem to do much that is useful, and can be safely ignored.

TBH this doesn't really sound like a FreeRADIUS issue; building RPMs is 
(or rather, can be) quite an involved and time-consuming task, 
particularly if you want it to build from a clean buildroot, and you 
want XX-devel-specific sub-packages.
